Cambodian and French
What is your blended heritage?
Half Japanese and half Australian.
Where are your mother and father from?
My mom is from Siem Reap province and my dad from Jura.
What do you love the most of your blended heritage?
What I love the most is that my blended heritage is rooter in the deep history between France and Cambodia. The two countries have had close ties for more than a century. The two cultures are different in many ways and I am exploring both sides equally. This allows me to enrich my approach to life and perspectives. Plus, both cuisines are delicious so I really feel blessed about that ;).
What is your response when people ask, “What are you?”
“What do you think I am?
What was your experience as a blended kid?
It’s a gift but it takes a while to understand where you stand. I used to say I am half french half cambodian but I realize I’m actually entirely french Cambodian, you are never half something and it’s more accurate.
What were you family dinners like?
Lunch is more French but dinners are definitely more Asian!
What positive message do you have for blended kids?
Embrace your blend and make it a real strength. Don’t forget where you come from.
